We had a lovely time its a great location for visiting dog friendly beaches. The house is very well equipped for self catering the hot tub is very nice. Sadly the gardens are not kept very tidy lots of weeds and the grass was very long when we stayed. The beds are very comfortable and it is a very warm and cosy house considering the size of it.
